    Good company overall but needs improvement in keeping and maintaining top talent

    Pros

    Organized work environment and well-established company processes.

    Cons

    Lower than average salaries as compared to other tech companies, little to no employee professional development program to empower employees and keep top talent. Salary increases are non-existent or minimal and don't seem to tied to performance/appraisals. Managers who focus too much on the bottom line vs. having the necessary management skills to empower and motivate their teams to do good work. This I would say is a HUGE problem. Maintaining top talent and motivating employees contributes directly to the bottom line and creates a culture of long term positive growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a solid employee retention and professional growth program will benefit the company and create a more positive work environment. Reward your employees with better salary increases and make salaries more competitive and in line with competing tech companies in order to retain and keep top talent.

    Pros

    Work-life balance, stable company, builds products used by large numbers of big corporations. Location in a nice campus, good gym. Extensive documentation makes it easy to learn about established products.

    Cons

    Large organization, lots of politics, information flows inefficiently. Top management (executives) out of touch with the individual contributors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What they do is good for the company but not necessarily great for individual contributors. Better compensation would go a long way towards improving employee morale and reduce the churn of people leaving.
